i was gonna go shooting today since i havent gone in like over a year but fuckin everywhere is sold out of ammo. idk if its cause of black friday (which i forgot about) or if ppl are still panic buying cause of the election/lockdowns or what. i only have a shotgun and a glock so i just needed some 9mm and 12 gauge but couldnt get any. mostly just wanted to shoot some clay pigeons and have fun but oh well
There must be a lot of private individuals sitting on huge stockpiles.
To even out the supply fluctuations I keep ~5,000 .22 and 5,000 primers at any one time which, isn't really a lot.

I've done both. Bows are a different experience. It's not loud, it doesn't stink, it's inexpensive compared to new ammunition or reloading costs, and people aren't pointing their guns in your direction while trying to clear a jam.

I've been on a walkthrough trail with targets arranged in safe directions. More of a chill activity if you've got a compound bow, since it requires less effort to keep those at a full draw than the absolute workout traditional can turn into if you've got a hefty draw.

AFAIK there's no national shortage of arrows, so people like macbeth who are getting ready for the zombie apocalypse could stock up with a weapon that won't attract a horde.

e: IMO it's more satisfying to land an arrow 20-30 yards downrange than to rifle a bullseye at greater distances. I'm with you on shooting clay though, best time I've had with guns.

I'd wager it's still election scaremongering-related. Saw something about how Kamala is gonna be coming fer yer guns so y'all better stock up now and the rubes duly lined up to clear out the shelves. The industry execs are crying from laughter and dabbing at their tears with hundred dollar bills.

I seem to remember a similar run on supplies when Obama won.

I could be patriotic and buy a ready made Lithgow LA105 with a KRG stock - not sure about the stock though yet, I'll have to try it for fit, at least it looks like a long range rifle, not some gear queers AR15 accessory fantasy.

Or could go for a Tikka T3 and get the stock later.

Next question - Old school .308 or 6.5mm and wear the shorter barrel life. I'm going to need to reread the rules on the matches I may want to shoot.
